The forecasters are calling for unusually cold temps for the weekend  . So Pine Bluffs will more than likely see snow. Welcome to wild, wacky Wyoming!

It was 35° a couple of mornings when we were out in Douglas. Didn't occur to me to check the heater in my RV.  :wb:

Ended up using the range for heat a few times, and then bought a cheap space heater from Hardware Hank.

Undisputable evidence of global warming, eh?!
When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them,  and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation.

The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

The follow up!! We did not get the anticipated white flakey stuff, however it was cold and rainy to start the event. But the sun came out around 10am and warmed things up enough that layers were being removed. All in all a pleasant weekend.
